Its been a pet themed week - i've got something for the cat people and something for the dog people to share today!
Cosy Organic Cat Blanket
Its been hot hot hot across the UK this week! Whilst enjoying the sun's warming rays though i've actually been working on something soft and cosy - two of my favourite words at any time of year :)
Every cat owner knows that their feline friend excels at finding the softest and most comfortable place to take a nap - well, now they can have their very own snuggle blanket!
The fabric is 100% organic bamboo fibre - sooooooooo soft as well as absorbent and also said to have antibacterial properties! Another bonus is that because this is a natural material it won't create uncomfortable static electricity in the way that fabrics made from synthetic materials can.
The fleece is luxuriously thick (400gcm). I have decorated the blanket with applique sleeping cat in natural white bamboo.
Its available from my Etsy shop and other outlets prices £25.
I'm really pleased with how it turned out and am itching to make a doggy version too! I know it would be a fav with my comfort seeking whippet :) speaking of whom...
Love My Dog Wall Hanging
I love that this quote comes from as far back as 1150! :)
Incase this picture is hard to read it says:
Qui Me Amet
My Dog Also)
- St Bernard
The applique dog has three layers to add some depth and i've embroidered the quote with a running stitch.
The reverse side is plain red linen and i've put in a layer of wadding to add substance.
I'm not sure what to call this... a wall hanging? A door hanging? Its 18 x 11.5cms... what do you think?
I've loved making this as my little doggy is super special to me and we definitely come as a package :)

I hope it appeals to my customers too as i'd love to make some more like it!
That's it from me for this week - i'm off to do some more strawberry picking* before taking a trip round the other Handmade Monday crafty blogs.
* we have so many from our allotment right now, i've been jam making, freezing, ice cream making, not to mention giving away... and still they keep coming! lucky we all like strawberries!
Thanks for stopping by :) xxx
